I think there could be a need for the Nissan Leaf, but I also think the Volt is way over price. Too bad they don't offer any real testing data.

and the electricity is free?

The Volt is a joke. In order to get maximum performance, the engine and interior compartment need to be "pre-conditioned" which uses lots of electricity. At the end of the day it would cost significantly much more time to pay itself off when compared to a conventional internal combustion engine. The sad part is tax payers are paying the $8000 subsidy for these mistakes, um I mean electric cars.

The volt is essentially a hybrid and not an electric car anyhow.

Correct. Guess you could call it a "plug-in" hybrid.
